...And Finally, Facebook Officially Releases Seamless App for iPad, Updates iPhone App

After several months of speculation, social network site Facebook have finally released the first version of its iPad application, available for free on the App Store, today.

The iPad app enables games to be played in full screen and you guessed it, in HTML5. HTML5 allows the game play to continue across devices in a seamless fashion as users don't need to install any specific apps.

iPad users ‘suffered’ because of the lack of the Apple’s tabet-tailored Facebook app since Apple launched it over a year ago. It became a good profit for third-party selling their own apps that showed Facebook pages.

The delay was probably caused by a prolonged Apple and Facebook talks about deepening the integration of the social network into the system software of the Apple products. New Apple’s updated system software iOS X Lion, announced this year, features integration with Twitter, rather than Facebook.

The iPad-specific app is now easily integrated with other iOS apps. The Facebook app will send users directly to other apps when they navigate to it from a friend’s news post or status update. The app also supports high-res photos that can be flipped like a real photo album. Users also have an ability to see where friends are located via with the ‘Nearby’ mapping option.
